Eggplant in Fish Sauce Stirfry

My aunt came to visit from Australia and she shared with me her eggplant recipe. Thank you "Ba Von" for this simple and delicious recipe.

Stirfry Recipe: Eggplant in Fish Sauce
1 tablespoon salt
3 cups water
1 long purple eggplant
1 tablespoon sugar
3 tablespoons fish sauce
1 chopped chili
1 tablespoon oil
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
1 egg
chopped cilantro for garnish

In a bowl, dissolve salt into water. Chop eggplant into bite size pieces and add into salt water for 5 minutes. In a small bowl, add sugar and fish sauce and chili. Mix to dissolve sugar. In a wok over high heat, add oil and garlic. Stir until garlic is crisp. Drain water from chopped eggplant and add to wok. Stirfry for 1 minute. Add the sugar, fish sauce and chili mixture. Stirfry for 1 minute. Crack the egg into wok and stirfry for 1 minute. Serve immediately and garnish with chopped cilantro.

Serve with sticky rice or khao chow and the Classic Thai / Lao Hot Sauce.

This dish looks great!

This is completely unrelated, but do you have a good recipe for a fruit dipping sauce.. especially sour fruit like green mango?

I have posted the Green Mango Salad recipe if that helps. You reminded me to post my favourite dipping sauce for sour fruits like mangos and apples. This dipping sauce includes the Ground Toasted Sticky Rice. The recipe will be up soon.
